Overview

The year is 1620. As the Mayflower tacks about to avoid the dangerous shoals of Pollock Rip off the Cape Cod coast, a young girl mysteriously jumps to her death.

Almost four centuries later the psychic imprints of that incident-and a string of related incidents-begin to wreak havoc in the lives of two prominent Americans.

A corporate executive sailing in Nantucket Sound is unexpectedly barraged by a violent storm at sea-which no other vessel even detects on radar. A highly respected college professor swears he can see the outline of two large figures hovering over the foot of his bed, one brandishing a knife.

Both men have two things in common: They are scions of the privileged Pennfield clan-one of America's great families, claiming an unbroken line back to the Mayflower. And, unbeknownst to them, their strange bouts with the paranormal have just begun.

The Pennfields soon realize these encounters are not isolated occurrences, but an orchestration of paranormal events haunting the entire family. Concerned, they enlist the aid of retired construction contractor turned ghost hunter, Ed Swann. In his methodical manner, Swann uncovers a mystery that unravels the dark underside of the Pennfields' cherished lineage-leading them all the way back to the incident on the Mayflower.

"Fascinating and haunting narrative entertaining and enjoyable story."-Tom Crawford, Ghostsource.com

"A tantalizing blend of suspense and the paranormal."-Mary Jane Clark, New York Times Bestselling Author

There was so much potential here, but rather than spending time on furthering plot or character developement. There is toomuch focus on stuffthat really wasn't integral to the plot line. The author couldof done better. Want a good ghost story, read Phil Rickman.

trite, thin story line

This story grabs your attention and never lets go. It's intriguing, well-written and engaging. It's novel, too, as it traces a curse from the days of the Mayflower into the 21st Century. Whether you're a ghost story fan or you're just looking for escape, you'll get into Mean Spirits!

I loved the storyline of this book. It is very rare to come across an original plot that keeps you riveted to the pages like this one. Mr. Chiocchi has done a fabulous job of creating unforgettable characters and spine-tingling storylines. Every page is a joy to read. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes mystery, suspense and a little scare... it's great!

A rare book that I simply could not put down. Great end of summer beach reading!

This would make a terrific movie. As I read the scene where Ed Swann was introduced I could just picture Paul Newman playing the part - sort of an aged Fast Eddie...shuffleboard instead of pool. It really is a terrific story - A great yarn, skillfully spun. One tense chapter after another. Also, having visited Newport RI, made the book all the more interesting.

Mean Spirits is a great ghost story - I stayed up until 3am to finish it. The characters are great, and there are lots of little unexpected twists...don't want to give anything away, but the ending will surprise you! You've got to read this book!

Really great, couldn't put it down. One of the best ghost stories I've ever read.

I really loved this one. A great ghost story with suspense and mystery. Very realistic. And I loved the Ed Swann character, the ghost hunter. It has everything -- apparitions, out of body experiences, poltergeist hauntings -- and a great story line.
